Living Reformation Projects

Take Action Right Where You Are

What is it?

Discover your reformatory potential by taking action in your own church context. The Living Reformation projects are youth-led projects that are implemented at the local church level. They follow the Reformation themes "Salvation-not for sale", "Human beings- not for slae" and "Creation-not for sale". All project holders are regularly connecting online to young reformers in other LWF member churches. This way everyone can learn in a cross-regional and cross-cultural way.

How did it all start?

During their regional meetings in 2015, young reformers started to act and challenge other church leaders on themes they have identified. During their global meeting at the Workshop Wittenberg in August 2015, all young reformers received project training and networked with others to form international teams around similar issues. On Reformation Day 2015, more than 60 Living Reformation Projects were launched in the LWF member churches.

How can I connect and learn more?

Through your engagement with a Living Reformation Project, you'll get to connect with other Young Reformers on topics of shared interest to develop ideas together and get support, guidance and feedback. You'll be able to find out what's happened in the projects through the Young Reformers social network and this website. The LWFyouth Desk also offers monthly online conferences, the Young Reformers' Space.

Young Reformers will be presenting the results in local, regional and global Reformation 2017 activities and events such as the LWF Twelfth Assembly in Windhoek, Namibia and the World Reformation Exhibition in Wittenberg, Germany.
